The Plymouth Tapestry Experience

An opportunity to make your mark on Pilgrim Hall's monumental and historic canvas

The Plymouth Tapestry

The Plymouth Tapestry is a signature project of Pilgrim Hall Museum, which will conserve and display the forty-yard-long artifact for generations to come.

 

Tapestry designer Elizabeth Creeden is an artist noted for remarkable reproductions of historic embroidery pieces as well as for historically inflected creative designs. She brings  a vibrant visual imagination and exacting technical skill to both genres of work.

Dozens of volunteers and donors on the Plymouth Tapestry team are working together to mark Plymouth’s 400th anniversary in a satisfyingly enduring and meaningful way.

Join the team by taking part in a two-day Plymouth CRAFT workshop led by accomplished stitchers, designers and teachers.

The Experience

Six participants per session will work with noted instructors to advance the execution of the of the Plymouth Tapestry's Prologue Panel. The workshop will take place in the newly restored historic Steinway Library at Pilgrim Hall Museum.

 

Stitchers of any level of experience are welcome; the instructors will teach and direct participants to make best and most efficient use of their time with the aim of accomplishing progress on the panel.

 

Please note: Depending upon the needs of the project, participants may work in only one or two types of stitches during the workshop. In so doing, they will gain mastery through repetition and will have the satisfaction of seeing their work publicly displayed on this historic artifact and conserved in perpetuity.

An utterly unique experience!
